Earn your IoT security certification
Enterprises rolling out IoT devices are justifiably excited about the opportunity to gain insight from the data that these remote sensors can provide. But at the same time, companies are worried about the security risks that come along with an IoT implementation.
In fact, 90 percent of businesses lack full confidence that their IoT devices are secure, according to a recent AT&T State of IoT Security survey. IoT customers would be willing to pay 22 percent more for secure IoT devices and would buy 77 percent more of them, if they could be assured that security was not an issue, according to a Bain & Co. survey.
CertNexus and Insider Pro are partnering to offer subscribers access to online IoT security training.
In response to these concerns, IDG Insider Pro is teaming up with CertNexus to offer a training course that leads to a Certified IoT Security Practitioner (CIoTSP) certification. The certification validates the knowledge, skills and abilities of IT staffers to secure network environments for IoT devices, analyze vulnerabilities and determine reasonable controls against threats, and effectively monitor IoT devices and respond to incidents.
